+ 0 Votes Have you tried resetting Internet Explorer's settings? wizard57m-cnet Moderator 1 year ago Sometimes sneaky malware will attempt to hijack your browser and result in bad entries for DNS, connections, etc. Did you scan for malware? From IE, click on Tools, then Internet Options, then Advanced tab, then click Reset button at the lower part of page to reset IE settings to defaults. You can also access this from Control Panel, then Internet Options. Are any other internet enabled applications functioning? Such as email applications, Outlook, Outlook Express, Live Mail? If these are not working then you may need to open Control Panel and check your Network settings.
